    I have been working at Alan Boswell Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The friendliest and most professional group of people I've ever worked for, it's more like visiting a second family than going to work. I recently had a major operation which meant I had to take 12 weeks off and they made sure that I had no worries and lost no pay.

    Cons

    Too much cake in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what's you're doing

    I have been working at Alan Boswell Group

    Pros

    Alan Boswell Group is an excellent company to work with and for - I have been here nearly 8 years and in this time they have helped me through some difficult issues being very accommodating and understanding. My husband broke his back and Alan Boswell allowed me to work extra hours over my contracted part time hours ( after having a baby) which then helped make up the money we were losing through my husband being out...

    Cons

    Being a skinny blonde ( now brown ) vegan does not get you anywhere at the Alan Boswell Group - hard work does !

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Alan Boswell Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good remuneration package and staff benefits including an annual group bonus. Fairly relaxed atmosphere compared to other similar organisations I've worked for. Financially supports professional qualifications, plenty of training, operates a quality first programme, has Investors In People and Chartered status. The free Christmas Party is always a good event.

    Cons

    No real cons as long as you apply yourself but underperformance is addressed with further training and support in the first instance.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency is key, keep striving forward through personal development plans and staff progression. The workforce is your most valuable asset.

    I have been working at Alan Boswell Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company has an excellent track record of looking after their staff. good remuneration package along with 25 days holiday, nice working environment and a visible management team. Annual appraisals, quarterly one-to-ones. The Christmas party is completely paid for - including all drinks! And we've had a bonus every year I've been here. Priority is on the customer and that shows.

    Cons

    You have to buy your own tea bags and milk which is a bit daft - but I guess people just steal them if they were supplied.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes we find things out from gossip in the office rather than from the management or the intranet, which is frustrating.
